“This country is rich in musical talent and we have assembled an impressive cast of both rising young stars and theatre greats to bring Doctor Zhivago to the stage,” said producer John Frost. “Based on the famous novel by Boris Pasternak, it is one of the most breathtaking love stories ever told. And with the huge talent of Anthony Warlow in the title role, and the combined creative genius of Broadway director Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys, Tommy), composer Lucy Simon, (The Secret Garden), lyrics by Michael Korie and Amy Powers, and book by Michael Weller, we can look forward to a piece of landmark theatre for 2011. Australian audiences are in for an emotional journey,” he said.

This premiere season of the epic musical Doctor Zhivago plays at the Lyric Theatre, Star City, Sydney from February 11, 2011, and at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Melbourne from April 9.
